This is my first post to this forum. I am new to Linux servers and have some questions…

I am contemplating dumping my ailing MacOS Server and replacing it with something that actually serves files! Univention Software on first brush looks suitable. I have a couple of questions.

  1. Can I use a Mac computer to reconfigure to run the software on?
  2. How does it handle file serving with permissions, inheritance, propagation of permissions etc.
  3. FTP - is that intrinsically handled?

I’m sure that if I go ahead I will have many more questions but that is enough for now. Cheers.
